Martijn Blekendaal goes by the name ‘Bleeki’, aka ‘The Big O’ Bleek’ or in short ‘The Big O’ or ‘O’ or just ‘ ‘. A film buff, historian, doc director, father, friend, but most importantly: a complete and utter beer nerd. Martijn and Finbarr were paired as a director/editor couple for Martijn’s film ’Through the Looking Glass’. When they first met, Finbarr ordered a cappuccino while Martijn ordered a beer. Despite these artistic differences, they made a great film that was nominated as best youth documentary at IDFA. Martijn lives by the motto: if there’s still people and beer around, why go home? It has brought him two films per year, a wonderful family and the best brewery in the world.
